Embracing a Healthy Family: Tassimo Supremo Hot Beverage System Review

Tassimo Supremo Hot Beverage System Review



This is a coffee drinking house and with as many children as we have, a hot chocolate one as well.  My oldest loves Starbucks for their hot chocolate and is slowly drifting over to the adult world of cappuccinos.  My husband is a plain coffee drinker with a sometimes craving for cappuccino and espresso so when I was given the opportunity by Tassimo for a complimentaryTassimo Supremo Hot Beverage System with T DISKS, I eagerly agreed!  This is an all around wonderful addition to our tastes.  Not only can my husband start his Army days off nice and warm with a delicious cup of coffee but the girls and I get to indulge in some amazing tasting Milka hot chocolate.



Once I opened the nicely packed box, I read the instructions which you have to do to understand how to assemble it.  It wasn't difficult by any means but my excitement was that of a little girl and I wanted it NOW!  I followed the cleaning direction and assembled everything.  I then looked through the wonderful array of products we were able to try:
  • Starbucks Caffe Verona is superior to regular coffee making systems at home.  It has a rich, full bodied taste and not bitter.  It is a dark blend but is very delicious.
  • Gevalia Cappuccino - the creamy layer of froth is a nice top off to this two disk package.  It has a nice bold, rich flavor.  This is a definite great replication to coffee house quality cappuccinos.
  • Gevalia Signature Blend is another great tasting, high quality blend that has a rich, full bodied taste and is very smooth.
  • Milka Hot Chocolate is my favorite!  It is rich, creamy and tastes better than any store bought version.  I also cheat and shoot in a shot of whipped cream just like Starbucks does.  It is an amazing cup of smooth, rich tasting chocolate and is so quick to make.
  • Twining's Chai Tea Latte is sweet and creamy as well as delicious and smooth.  I did not try this one but my husband did and provided the above comments.
The beauty of Tassimo Hot Beverage Systems are in the T DISCS.  They have their own barcode which tells the Tassimo System how to precisely made the hot beverage you want.  You have the convenience of size as you made a single serving thus not wasting any and the convenience of a quick throw away T DISCS without the filters.  One of the best advantages if you can create a primo cup of a magnificent tasting beverage to meet anyone's request.  You are not limited to one type of a beverage. What a great treat that makes if you have guests!  It's so simple to make a delicious beverage.   Just slip in the T DISC, press the button and it's ready in 60 seconds.
It's such a quick way to make you look like you slaved over this gourmet drink when in reality, all you have to do is slip the disk in and push a button!  Some beverages have two disks but that's not a big deal once you realize how delicious they all are. 

Another plus of the system is the adjustable cup platform.  Pretty much all sizes of cups will fit whether you adjust the height up or remove the base to allow for a travel mug or other tall mug.  It's so versatile and only takes up a small space on the counter.  All parts are dishwasher safe which only makes it even more appealing.

The only con is the fact that they can become costly if you overindulge in some of the brands but the taste outweighs the cost. 

Tassimo is Kraft Foods' proprietary home brewing system that lets consumers make delicious coffee, tea, hot chocolate, cappuccino, espresso and lattes, one cup at a time.

The Tassimo is definitely a very nice beverage making system. My auto dealer has one in their waiting lounge and I always guzzle a few drinks while I'm waiting for my car to be serviced.
